How to create custom stamps
Conveniently, it is Deutsche Post itself that offers the service. So you don’t have to worry about the validity of the brands. Just follow these steps to create it:
- Visit the Post’s website. Go to the Post Office page for individual mail items.
- Custom Stamps button. Under “Custom Stamps” click on the “Create Now” button.
- Specify value and quantity. On the following page you determine the value of your brands. You will receive the stamps later on a sheet. There is a minimum order quantity of ten pieces. You can choose between sheets of 10 or 20 pieces. The price is automatically calculated and displayed. The more you order, the cheaper the price per brand becomes. Then click on “Next”.
- Upload theme. Now you have the option to select and upload one or more images. Use the mouse to drag your images individually into the stamp templates.
- Edit stamp. If you click on the inserted image in the stamp template, you can change the image detail and size again and add text if required.
- Check last time. When everything is ready, you will be prompted again to review your artwork.
- Pay and enjoy. If everything is in order, you come to the payment formalities. Fill them out and look forward to your stamps with your own picture.
Stamps with your own image – possible uses
There are far more uses for custom stamps than you might think. Some of them look like this:
Of course you can simply use the stamps to personalize your mail. Even before opening, the recipient will see that the letter is from you. I’m sure he’ll be happy.
Individual stamps are also a nice gift. Surprise a friend with stamps featuring a personal motif.
If you are in the creative field, you can use the stamps as a self-marketing tool. For example, you can send out invitations to a vernissage with one of the works on display.
There is also the option of having a plus letter printed instead of online stamps. This is an envelope already stamped with the appropriate postage values. Here you can have your pictures printed as a stamp on the cover.
